ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday decided to indict former Prime Minister Imran Khan in a contempt case on September 22nd. The court termed former premier’s reply unsatisfactory. 

The court is hearing the contempt of court case against Imran following his remarks against Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry.

The IHC also expressed dissatisfaction over Imran’s supplementary reply in the contempt case, terming the party chief’s statement ‘incitement’.

The case was heard by a larger bench of the IHC led by Chief Justice Athar Minallah. Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb, Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani, Justice Tariq Mahmood Jahangiri and Justice Babar Sattar are part of the bench.

The former premier was present in court with his lawyer Hamid Khan.

“As per the court’s observation we have submitted the reply”, Hamid said, referring to Imran’s statement regarding the case.

After the IHC’s show cause notice, the former premier submitted a second written reply yesterday, expressing his deep regret for the “unintentional” words he spoke about the judge.
